Noel Gallagher has told The Daily Star that he would welcome working with Damon Albarn on the forthcoming Gorillaz album. He said: "He’s making a new Gorillaz album and he’s got my number, so he’s only got to ask. There is talk of doing something but I’m not sure what it is." He then added: "I mean trying to get the two of us in the same room would be a fuckiing miracle. But I’m certainly open to the idea, for sure."
Bayside will release their new album, Vacancy, in August. Take a look at the cover, below:
